Try This Simple Rule For Better Sleep


Perhaps the #2 complaint I hear – from new patients anyway – is “I don’t have enough energy”. (COVID work-from-home scenarios have increased spine & body pain complaints up to #1) Well, it might not surprise you to know that the foundation for energy is none other than consistently getting a better quality of sleep. And while some people claim they’re good with six hours or so, research would suggest otherwise. According to most studies on cognition, 7-8 hours is mandatory. Researchers have also found that the effect of not enough sleep builds up! This is true even if subjects don’t [...]

3 Biggest Running Mistakes


Today’s content is a must-read.  (If not, well, there’s still value in the principles) For me, running is a passion (I sadly can’t remember if I’ve spoken about this passion of mine).  I’m an accomplished half-marathoner at my peak and the main intent of my recent fitness “reboot” has been to go for more runs.  I love the ease of just stepping out the door, it’s literally a no-brainer so long as I’m dressed properly. One caveat: running can be a negative stress on your body as well as all of the positive benefits it procures. Here, for your viewing pleasure, [...]

Are achy joints just a fact of aging?


Hi everyone! This week I'm sharing some Q&A from daily patient interactions - the top questions I get about joints and aging:   QUESTION: I find as I’m getting older, my joints are getting achier.  Is this just a fact of aging, or is there something I can do about it? A: Actually my answer might surprise you. A lot of the typical aches and pains we gripe about as we get older are due to (a) wear and tear, and (b) a slow buildup of chronic low-grade inflammation.  And this CAN be controlled with good nutrition, supplementation, and fixing muscle [...]

Injury Prevention Guidelines for Runners


Some Background After 3 half-marathons in the span of 1.5 years (2006-2007), I felt accomplished.  I had a great running partner, we pushed each other, and it was fun!  Circumstances led to a friendship ending and I was left without the same motivation to run consistently. Fast forward almost 3 years, and I was in search of an anchor/some help to keep up the runs that I always enjoyed, but found difficult to progress with.  Insert medieval trumpet announcement here - through some friendly conversations The Running Room (High Park) presented itself! I ran IN clinics for a few years before being [...]

Exercise Makes Kids’ Brains More Efficient


Researchers have proven over and over that exercise pumps up more than just muscules — it can also improve memory and other brain functions. But a lot of those studies have focused on gray matter, the stuff useful for memory that shrinks in old age. New research says fitness boosts another kind of brain matter, the white kind. Examining the brains and fitness levels of 24 children ages 9 and 10, scientists at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign said white matter is thicker and denser in the fitter kids. That suggests a greater capacity for memory, attention span and cognitive efficiency. [...]
